News you need to know!

Update Websites - If you have not already done so, please make sure that website is up-to-date with the latest, greatest information for your classroom. Thank you!

Attendance - Make sure that attendance is being taken as close to the 10:00 bell as possible. Also, please make sure that the 8:00 and 10:00 attendance are being entered into the correct column. Thanks everyone!

Boys' Restrooms - We are having a big issue with urine being on the floor (not by accident) in the boys' restrooms. Just an FYI. . . Juan is now making sure to check the restrooms multiple times a day to try to get a better idea of the timeframe in which this is happening.

Progress Reports - All grades need to be entered on Friday so that Progress Reports can be run by Clarence. If your team is planning to run their own Progress Reports, please have the team leader email Clarence and me tomorrow (Friday).
